Jesus. If you need it immediately, then just email. If not, ask them in person. How complicated is this shit?

edit: also, no, they don't care about test scores. yes, they'd probably like a resume.

You ask an important question. When you approach a professor, if you could give them a copy of your work submitted in his/her class with comments, that would be ideal. In addition, you should provide them a letter about where you are applying and why you are applying. In addition, your transcript and resume are also very helpful. If you have also drafted your PS, that would be very helpful as well. The more information about your candidacy, the better the LOR. Good luck to you!!
